The short story collection in Once Upon A Scare offers some of the best writing for young adults that I've had the privilege of experiencing. The stories run short of horror while concentrating on scenes, situations, and characters that young adults will experience in the real world, yet Dr. Bon Blossman places these characters into supernatural, metaphysical, and paranormal situations. Each of the stories has a scare element or horror factor, without the need for the gruesome blood and guts that some horror fans enjoy.
Dr. Blossman's skill at story-telling is more than sufficient; it's downright intriguing and enough to keep even hard-core horror fans eagerly turning the pages in Once Upon A Scare. A key element in holding our attention is a sense of reality which applies to all facets of the story-telling in this collection. From scene setting to characterizations and dialog to methods, instruments, and minute details shared across the board, Blossman is among the best at keeping it all real. With noteworthy talent, this will not be the last book of hers that I will pick up.
